    Exclamation Texan tries out new Camaro ZL1 Underwater Edition [w/video]

    Texans, please stay away from water in your sports cars. Now, this latest fiasco isn't quite so dire as the Lone Star State's last attempt at an amphibious sportscar - a waterlogged Bugatti Veyron - although that's largely because the Veyron in that story cost $1.6 million and this submerged Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 only cost about $57,000. Still, it's a sad state of affairs for the supercharged, 580-horsepower rocket.

    According to witnesses, the young driver was, naturally, driving too fast and lost control, charging through a wrought-iron fence and into a community swimming pool.

    "I was driving right behind him the whole time," the driver's friend, Ashton Brantley, told NBC affiliate KPRC Houston. "He lost control, and I think he took his traction control off. And then he just hit the curb, and then went into the fence, and then he hit the pool."

    Thankfully, there was no one in the pool at the time of the crash. As for the ham-fisted John Doe behind the wheel, he managed to swim out through an open window. He may face charges from the police, while his insurance will be responsible for any damages to the swimming pool.

    Take a look below for the news report from KPRC Houston.Continue reading Texan tries out new Camaro ZL1 Underwater Edition [w/video]

    I drove a 2014 ZL1 convertible this weekend and boy was I disappointed with the performance. I feel the car has power but it is way too fat and heavy to be a sports car. Granted, my friend loaded this car up with all the options available including Navigation and paddle shift automatic. I ran the 2014 ZL1 against my 2002 SS which runs 12.7 @ 109 and my Camaro did not lose by very much. I then drove the ZL1 against my friends 2012 ZR1 Vette and I got pummeled by more car lengths then I could count. Point is the 2014 Camaro ZL1 is a stone off the line, handles a bit above average for this type of car and brakes very well. Not worth the 67k he paid for the car. I'll let you know if he put it up for sale. It has 935 miles.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k
